- D'Ailly, Profielen 186; De Vries, Atlas van Amsterdam 14; cf. D'Ailly, Profielen 55 & 74. Rare large engraved view of Amsterdam as seen from the inlet known as the IJ published by Reinier and Josua Ottens ca. 1730, with numerous ships on the IJ. It's the last state of the view by Jacob Savry published in 1647 and partly updated, including the changes made by Visscher in his issue from 1653. Most obvious are the changes on the east part of the city, with several new buildings including ''s Lands Zeemagazijn', now known as the Netherlands Maritime Museum.Washed and with one minor professional restoration near the title. Very good copy of a beautifully executed an detailed view of Amsterdam.
